If ๐ฅ divided by four equals 12, what is the value of ๐ฅ?

In order to solve this one-step equation, we need to do the same to the left as we do to the right of the equation; this is known as balancing. To balance this equation, weโre gonna multiply both sides by four. On the left-hand side, we have four multiplied by ๐ฅ divided by four and on the right-hand side, we have four multiplied by 12.

On the left-hand side, the fours cancel because four multiplied by quarter is one, leaving us with one ๐ฅ or ๐ฅ. On the right-hand side, four multiplied by 12 is 48. This means that the value of ๐ฅ is 48, when ๐ฅ divided by four equals 12.

We can check this answer by substituting the 48 back to our equation: 48 divided by four equals 12.
